Job Search Basics

While a Cornell student employment job may not directly align with your ultimate career goals, you should still take the job preparation and interview process seriously. It can mean landing a job that you really need, while also giving you a leg up post-graduation when careful job preparation and interviewing is essential.

Cornell’s Career Services Office offers numerous resources to get you prepared, including, but not limited to:

  • Developing a professional looking resume;
  • Writing cover letters that sell your skills; and
  • Knowing what to expect in a job interview.
